After Dark


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.5 stars; 18 reviews)

William Kerby is in danger of losing his sight, which would hit him especially hard as he is a painter. Only rest can preserve it, but a man must eat, and so he and his wife Leah look for other ways to generate a small income. Having travelled a good deal and having heard all kinds of stories on those journeys, William dictates six short stories to his wife, hoping that publishing a book might tide them over.. - Summary by Carolin (15 hr 11 min)
